In Honor of Kelly’s Life and Legacy
Gifts to the Kelly Catlin Fund benefit the Minnesota Cycling Center and young Women's Track Development.
Kelly Catlin was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. She earned bachelor’s degrees in biomedical engineering and Chinese from the University of Minnesota in 2018, and was pursuing a master’s degree in Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, when she passed away on March 8, 2019. Catlin began racing as a Junior category athlete with the NorthStar Development Team in Minnesota. She first represented Team USA at the 2013 UCI Road World Championships in the Junior Road Race and Junior Individual Time Trial. Her performances caught the attention of our National Team coaches; Kelly was then invited to a training camp, which led her to joining the USA Cycling National Team as a track rider. Subsequently, she won three World Championships as a member of the Women’s Team Pursuit squad in 2016, '17 and ’18 at the UCI Track World Championships and a silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Kelly also captured bronze medals at the 2017 & 2018 UCI Track World Championships in the Individual Pursuit. In addition, she was a member of the Rally UHC Cycling professional women's team.
